There is no question about it.

Anyone foolish enough to vote for Lieberman thinking they may get a right-wing party, is in actuality giving a vote to Tzippy Livni and Kadima.

There has been much speculation as to why Lieberman has been growing (at the Likud's expense), but one interesting theory espoused is that Lieberman is getting the Tommy Lapid/Shinui vote. Those people who voted out of hatred for the Hareidim, are now voting out of hatred for the Arabs. That's a scary thought.

But let's get back to the topic at hand. Lieberman sat in the Kadima government and propped up Ehud Olmert - exactly when his government was in such bad shape that elections were just around the corner.

Lieberman has no problem sitting with a Leftist party like Kadima, and has quite decisively not announced he would support a Bibi government over Livni's. You might say he is posturing before elections, but that clearly is not the case. Lieberman will sit wherever he gets more ministerial seats.

Worse, as Caroline Glick pointed out, Leiberman did nothing to prevent or slow down Iran's nuclear ambitions while he had his custom tailored ministerial seat, and worse, he kept the frozen Kadima government in power and delayed elections which just extended this inaction.

There are plenty of good right wing parties to vote for such as Ichud Leumi and the Bayit Yehudi, (and even the Likud is better vote thant Yisrael Beiteinu), but a vote for Liebeman/Yisrael Beiteinu is a vote to support Kadima.

Don't make that mistake.

Maybe Ovadia Yosef is right and Lieberman really is Satan!

I think that the polls are rather misleading. With the threat of Iran and the new administration in the US, the greatest chance of victory goes to the "Unity Government."

The only question is who will lead it: Netanyahu or Livni?

I thought Bibi had this thing nailed?


The way polls are done (in America), the insiders KNOW the results ahead of time! But they don't share this knowledge; anymore than you'd learn the wholesale price of something, you were buying retail.

In Israel, is really 20% of the vote unaccounted for? (Considered "haven't made up there minds, yet.")

Anyway, whatever government is formed, the likelihood that it will still be in business in two years isn't guaranteed.
